    AMBER alert issued for 6-year-old Marysville boy

    [snip]

    According to police, CPS attempted a welfare check on Venjamin but the child’s mother, Shannan Christine Guest, would not let them into the home. CPS left to obtain a court order to place Venjamin into State Custody. The mother made a statement to CPS that she would flee the area if things did not go her way.

    CPS returned to residence with court order of removal and the mother had taken the boy and left with her boyfriend, Gary Howard Cooper.

    I wonder what was going on in the home for mum to not let them in.

    I'm assuming that the last seen address was their home, and that CPS actually saw the child for there to be a description of what he was wearing. Otherwise, there's no telling when the child actually went missing.

    Praying this darling boy is found safely soon.

    Wow. I just can't read between the lines here. And there is surely something between the lines. Six years old with the mental capacity of an 18 month old would be some very difficult parenting. I can imagine misunderstanding on the part of onlookers. Could the mom have freaked out when child protective services arrived? I know I would be terrified to think someone might take my child. Even more so, if the child was very needy. I can't tell if this is a first visit or an on going case for CPS.

    Well, if the time stamp on the pic on facebook is correct, that looks like Venjamin. He looks like he's ok as of less than 3 hours ago. That's a good sign.
    Unless I've provided a link, most of what I say is my own opinion. Sometimes, I'm thinking out loud and may explore avenues I don't necessarily think are true, but I'm always aware I could be wrong, so I check other stuff out.

    From browsing mom's Facebook photos, she also has a daughter. From comments she made on a few photos, it seems like that daughter is not living with her at this time. Whether that was CPS related or not, I have no idea. But that would be one possible explanation for CPS involvement and why mom would be scared they would take Venjamin.

    Also, it looks like she tagged who I assume is Seth's dad. And he commented.

    Yeah, I definitely think the person who commented is Seth's dad, as he has a picture of Shannan and their daughter.

    This seems a bit odd. I can't put my finger on it, but it seems like there's something odd afoot.
